Mastcam mirror and Quela drillhole

We have got down a new self portrait of Curiosity from MAHLI.  This shows the Murray Butte number 12 - where we have just been drilling - in the ChemCam mirror. The drill (succesful at second attempt) is at Quela.  You can see how red and oxidised the tailings are, suggesting changing environmental conditions as we progress through the Mt. Sharp foothills.
